EFFECTIVE DECEMBER 19, 2017 The Membership waiting list is frozen. No names will be added or applications accepted until the waiting list drops down to 75 through attrition.   The current Waiting List stands at 168 and it is estimated that there is a 6 year waiting period for those on the bottom of the list.  After the January 16th Board of Directors Meeting appeals process it is determined that we have 17 vacancies to fill for 2018.  These vacancies will be filled from the first 17 applicants on the existing waiting list.
